1 David made king of Israel
1 Then 1 Chr. 11:1came all the tribes of Israel to David unto Hebron, and spake, saying, Behold, Gen. 29:14we are thy bone and thy flesh.
2 Also in time past, when Saul was king over us, 1 Sam. 18:13thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the Lord said to thee, 1 Sam. 16:1Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be a captain over Israel.
3 1 Chr. 11:3So all the elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; 2 Ki. 11:17and king David made a league with them in Hebron Judg. 11:11;1 Sam. 23:18before the Lord: and they anointed David king over Israel.
4 David was thirty years old when he began to reign, 1 Chr. 26:31;& 29:27and he reigned forty years.
5 In Hebron he reigned over Judah ch. 2:11;1 Chr. 3:4seven years and six months: and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty and three years over all Israel and Judah.
6 The capture of Jerusalem
6 And the king and his men went Judg. 1:21to Jerusalem unto Josh. 15:63;Judg. 1:8;& 19:11,12the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake unto David, saying, Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: [a]thinking, David cannot come in hither.
7 Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: 1 Ki. 2:10;& 8:1the same is the city of David.
8 And David said on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David's soul, 1 Chr. 11:6-9he shall be chief and captain. [b]Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.
9 So David dwelt in the fort, and called it ver. 7the city of David. And David built round about from Millo and inward.
12 And David perceived that the Lord had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Israel's sake.
13 And Deut. 17:17;1 Chr. 3:9David took him more concubines and wives out of Jerusalem, after he was come from Hebron: and there were yet sons and daughters born to David.
17 The Philistines defeated
17 1 Chr. 11:16But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, ch. 23:14and went down to the hold.
18 The Philistines also came and spread themselves in Josh. 15:8;Is. 17:5the valley of Rephaim.
19 And David 1 Sam. 23:2,4inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the Lord said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
20 And David came to Is. 28:21Baal-perazim, and David smote them there, and said, The Lord hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place [h]Baal-perazim.
22 1 Chr. 14:13And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
23 And when ver. 19David inquired of the Lord, he said, Thou shalt not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.
24 And let it be, when thou 2 Ki. 7:6hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then Judg. 4:14shall the Lord go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.
